I am so proud and thank full. I will of course wear it with pride.
The World Parkinson Coalition is pleased to invite you join us an Ambassador for the upcoming 5th World Parkinson Congress (WPC 2019), which will be held from June 4 to 7, 2019 at the International Kyoto Convention Center. This is our third group of WPC Ambassadors and we are thrilled to have such an amazing team of Parkinson advocates, all of whom live with PD, coming together from 13 countries to help promote the WPC experience to the global Parkinson’s community.
This congress is dedicated to providing an international forum for the latest scientific discoveries, medical practices and caregiver initiatives related to Parkinson’s disease. By bringing physicians, scientists, rehab professionals, care partners and people with Parkinson’s together, we hope to create a worldwide dialogue that will expedite the discovery of a cure and create better treatments for this devastating disease.
Please note that as an Ambassador you will be representing the World Parkinson Coalition and the WPC 2019 in your own country and region of the world, as well as online and at meetings. This is a commitment we ask that you take seriously and that you make a priority for the next two years.
This is a special title and we hope you wear it with pride. Please confirm your acceptance of this new role, and commitment to make this a priority through June 2019. We are looking forward to working with you.
